Make a Difference banner - wmp

We are currently recruiting for Special Constables in Herefordshire, Shropshire (including Telford & Wrekin), and Worcestershire.

All kinds of people, from all walks of life, for all kinds of reasons volunteer to join West Mercia Police Special Constabulary.

It's a way to get involved in policing and to give something back to the community.

Special Constables are unpaid, part-time police officers who work in some of the most important areas of policing, using their spare time to make a difference.

As a fully-trained Special Constable you will have full police powers, wear a police uniform and work alongside regular police officers and police staff.

You can choose to be a Special Constable in your area or choose to work as part of another local policing team.

There are also opportunities for promotion, offering you prospects for developing your leadership and management skills.

As a Special Constable you will be expected to commit to a minimum of 16 hours a month, although many people do significantly more.

The hours can be flexible to fit around your work and home life, and it is guaranteed no two shifts will ever be the same.

As a Special Constable you will be not paid for the role but you will receive full reimbursement for costs incurred for carrying out your duties.
